The goal of the Emergency Radiology (E. Rad) section is to provide high quality, timely, final readings to all ER patients and all inpatients requiring emergent/urgent radiological services.

Yale E. Rad was one of the first in the country to offer an in-house 24-hour attending level (board certified or board eligible radiologist with full residency training), and remain one of the few institutions to provide this level of service.

In addition, the role of our radiologists has been expanded to also provide teleradiology services, after hours and holidays, to off-site facilities including the YNHH Shoreline Medical Center in Guilford and the VA Administration Hospital in West Haven.

Schedule and Staffing

Since 1998 the Yale E. Rad section has been providing seamless coverage to the York Street Campus 24 hours a day. Beginning in August 2019 that coverage now extending to the St. Raphael and Shoreline Campuses with weekday coverage (previously emergency department coverage on these campuses was limited to evenings, nights, and weekends. Quality care is obtained by multiple overlapping shifts throughout the day and night

Our 12 full-time faculty members and 2 Leadership in Healthcare Fellows are core to the success of our section. In addition, there is opportunity for our Board Eligible and/or Certified Diagnostic Radiology fellows from our various sub-specialties to moonlight on evenings, weekends and holidays. This experience allows fellows from across the department to gain attending level experience. An active quality assurance process under which all subspecialty cross sectional imaging studies performed by the generalist are “double read” by the relevant subspecialty maintains uniformity of service with the highest level of subspecialty care to all patients..

Yale medical students form the backbone of our unique ER Radiology triage program. An active and healthy academic relationship also exists between ER radiology and various clinical services within Yale.
